A bit of film silliness

Best understated ending for a film: Eat Drink Man Woman

Best love scene: Don't Look Now (see Jonathan Lethem's essay, Donald Sutherland's buttocks)

Saddest love scene: Smash Palace

Sexiest Hitchcock scene: The 39 Steps, when the two main characters are unwillingly hand-cuffed to each other and she has to remove her stockings...

Second viewing surprisingly rewards: Eagle Vs Shark, As Good As It Gets, Basquiat

Second viewing surprisingly disappoints: American Splendour, Lost In Translation

Most interesting book to film adaptation: Tristram Shandy A Cock And Bull Story

To be continued...
